A coalition of land conservation groups is buying and preserving a 15,000-acre tree farm in western Maine that's been in one family for 12 generations.

Tom Duffus is Maine's representative for the Conservation Fund. He says the Chadbourne parcels include white pine forests that fed the family's sawmills for more than 100 years, as well as secluded trout brooks, and Tumbledown Dick Mountain.
